POWER SETTING (Refer to Page 12.)
Your GMRS-7000 can operate at two power levels: High (2W) and Low
(0.5W). You will find that for the majority of your needs, the low-power
setting will provide adequate communications and there should seldom
be any need to use high power, except in situations where you need
absolute maximum range. Using low power will greatly extend battery
life. We suggest you experiment with switching between low and high
power. However, we do recommend that you not change this setting
unless it proves to be necessary in your particular situation.

NOTES FOR GOOD COMMUNICATION
1 . The GMRS-7000 15 channels are shared on a ‘take turns’ basis.
This means other groups may be talking on any of the channels.
A common code of ethics/courtesy is to switch to another vacant
channel and not to attempt to talk over someone who is already using
the channel you first selected.
2. The GMRS-7000 has been designed to maximize performance
and improve transmission range in the field. To avoid interference,
it is recommended that you do not use the units closer than 5 feet
apart.
3. For best transmission results, always keep your mouth about 2-3
inches from the microphone (9) and speak slowly in a normal voice.
4. To increase battery life, avoid features such as Scan and Dual
Watch. These features will reduce operating time considerably.
Warning
• Do not operate the transceiver unless you are licensed to do so.
• Remove the battery from the transceiver if it is not expected to be used
for long periods. This will eliminate the possibility of chemicals leaking
from the battery and corroding the transceiver.
• Avoid exposing the transceiver to water or extremes of temperature.
• Do not use this device in or near a mining facility, which uses remotely
triggered explosives or in areas labeled “Blasting Area”. Premature or
accidental detonation may result.
• Do not attempt to modify or in any way increase the output of this
transceiver. Its output is designed to meet the legal limits set by the FCC.
• Do not use this device or change the battery in potentially explosive
atmospheres as sparks in such areas could result in an explosion.
• Turn your transceiver off wherever posted notices restrict the use of radios
or cellular telephones. Facilities such as hospitals may use equipment
that is sensitive to RF energy.
19
• Turn your transceiver off on board aircraft when requested to do so.
• Do not place your radio in front of a vehicle’s air-bag. If the air-bag deploys,
it could propel the transceiver like a projectile causing bodily injury.
